In brief: Surgical Wounds
The best way to have proper healing is to follow the surgeon's directions for activity and care of the wound.
You should make sure that you are eating a healthy diet. There has been much written about herbs and nutritionals in wound care with little 'accepted' research to back the claims. Making recommendations for herbs is also fraught with lack of regulation on the production of these product.

I would make sure you have a good vitamin pill with lots of Vit C and eat high protein foods.
